Paper Talk: Newcastle to rival Liverpool for Turkish sensation

Newcastle have entered the race to sign a £27m Liverpool target, while Chelsea are locked in talks to sign a new midfielder, according to Friday’s papers.
Newcastle have reportedly joined Liverpool in the race for Turkish wonderkid Abdulkadir Omur, but could be asked to pay as much as £27m to secure the Trabzonspor midfielder.
The 19-year-old, who has been labelled the “Turkish Lionel Messi”, has also been attracting interest from Manchester City as Premier League clubs line up to secure his services.
But now reports from Turkey claim that Rafael Benitez’s side are looking to beat their rivals to the player, as they look to turn round what has been a hugely disappointing season so far.
Omur is thought to be available for transfer, but only for a sum of around £27million, with the teenager being tipped to replace Adam Lallana at Anfield.
Liverpool, however, have since rejected claims that they see Omur as a direct replacement for the England midfielder.
